Beyond Malice by Rebecca Forster
Nora Royce, a sexy associate in a prestigious Los Angeles law firm, is accused of brutally murdering a partner's wife, and the legal community does not hesitate to throw her to the wolves.
With nowhere to turn, her only chance at a defense is with her estranged older sister, Amanda Cross. Amanda, armed with a tenacious spirit, no leads and no criminal defense experience, must defend her sister from what the D.A. claims is an open-and shut case. With the help of a handsome assistant-for-hire with a chip on his shoulder, this outgunned lawyer peels away the protective layers that cocoon the privileged few to reveal intentions that seem to be beyond reproach but are, in fact, beyond malice.
“Twisted with murder, intrigue, greed and romance with another shocking ending!”
